Biography

Executive Producer / Producer of Todd & The Book of Pure Evil. After graduating from McGill University in 1994 with a B.Sc. in Anatomy, Andrew Rosen volunteered on short films at the Canadian Film Centre (finding little work in freelance human dissection.) He soon landed his dream job as Assistant to the Director on Kids in the Hall: Brain Candy in 1995. After receiving his B.Ed. at University of Toronto in 1997, he was hired by Alliance Atlantis as a Production Executive in the feature film department, monitoring all aspects of production on films including Sunshine,eXistenZ, New Waterford Girl and The Good Thief. In 2002, Andrew produced the award-winning short film COUNTDOWN, and graduated from the Producer’s Lab at the Canadian Film Centre where he produced two short comedies, Squeezebox and Genie-nominated festival favourite The Dog Walker. Andrew then worked with Universal Studios and the producers of the feature films Dawn of the Dead and Cinderella Man, before co-founding Aircraft Pictures in 2005.
